PreCODE is an online community and information service for anyone interested in the prevention of cognitive decline and brain health optimization. PreCODE is intended for individuals who are asymptomatic and interested in preventing cognitive decline and promoting brain health optimization. It was designed for adults of any age with a family history of dementia, with risk factors such as pre-diabetes or inflammation, and for all of us who are over 45 years of age.

The Science Behind PreCODE

Internationally recognized expert in the mechanisms of neurodegenerative diseases, Dr. Dale Bredesen, has over 30 years of research into the causes of Alzheimer’s disease, shedding light on the variety of “insults” resulting from modern society that lead to neurodegeneration and interfere with the preservation of brain health. These insults, such as inflammation, insulin resistance, lack of trophic support, resistance to specific pathogens in our environment, and multiple other factors contribute to cognitive decline and occur slowly and insidiously over time providing a decade(s) long prodromal period in which we can intervene.

Inspired by Dr. Bredesen’s groundbreaking program that has demonstrated the reversal of cognitive decline, the PreCODE protocol provides you with the tools you need to defend yourself against these insults and optimize brain health for enhanced cognition. Learn more about the science behind PreCODE.

PreCODE’s Program Features:

  • A PreCODE Report, will be generated following labs (not included & only available to U.S. residents) and completion of online medical questionnaires and cognitive assessments. Download a sample report here
  • Your PreCODE Report will specifically identify any emerging Alzheimer’s subtypes and provide personalized instructions (including supplement recommendations) to prevent cognitive decline and enhance your cognition.
  • The Practitioner or Coach Locator Tool is available to build the prevention team you need to help ensure your success. Consulting with a physician, health coach, nutritionist and more is optional. If you choose to work with a healthcare professional(s), your accounts will be seamlessly integrated allowing for easy access, communication, and support.
  • Complimentary BrainHQ account for brain stimulation workouts.
  • Access to cognitive assessments, including MoCA or SLUMS (biannually) and the Cq (monthly), to track your progress.
  • Q & A opportunities with Dr. Bredesen through quarterly Town Hall meetings, which will be videotaped and conveniently available to view at your convenience.
  • A library of written and video guides for prevention, with detailed lifestyle and nutritional information including simple and delicious KetoFLEX 12/3 recipes.
  • Access to an online community for support and education.
  • The ReCODE mobile app to simplify the protocol and ensure compliance.

Why PreCODE?

The PreCODE Report provides you with personalized information that identifies emerging contributors to cognitive decline and checks for presence of the ApoE4 gene.

The Practitioner or Coach Locator Tool provides PreCODE subscribers with full access to a network of optional Bredesen-certified physicians, health coaches, nutritionists, and more who can provide guidance on your brain health optimization.

The ReCODE Mobile App provides PreCODE subscribers a convenient way to access all of the available resources for the program, such as nutritional and lifestyle guides, forums where you can post and read messages from other community members, view your data and progress, and access cognitive testing.

Complimentary BrainHQ account for brain training exercises.


Learn Your Cq Score

The first step to improving your cognition begins with quantifying your current status. Take our free cognitive quotient “Cq” assessment, a test devised by Dale Bredesen MD, created specifically to detect early signs of neurological degeneration. Check your Cq score today.

Once your labs have been processed and your medical questionnaires and cognitive assessments are completed, you will be able to generate your personalized report. Please double check all of the information you’ve entered, since you will not be able to change or correct entries once you generate a report. Don’t panic if any of your test results are missing; you can enter missing data later, then update your report.

Dale Bredesen, MD

Dr. Bredesen’s career has been guided by a simple idea: that Alzheimer’s and cognitive decline as we know it is not just preventable, but reversible. Thanks to a dedicated pursuit of finding the science that that makes this a reality, his idea has placed Dr. Bredesen at the vanguard of neurological research and led to the discoveries that today underlie the PreCODE Report.

The End of Alzheimer’s Program

In The End of Alzheimer’s, Dr. Dale Bredesen laid out the science behind his revolutionary new program that is the first to both prevent and reverse symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease. Now in The End of Alzheimer’s Program, he lays out the detailed program he uses with his own patients. Accessible and detailed, it can be tailored to anyone’s needs and enhance cognitive ability at any age.
